Alleged " drunk in charge " case adjourned

Hertfordshire Mercury, 30th January 1931


Lovat Fraser Coltman, of 263 West Green Road, London, a Master Butcher, was summoned for being drunk in charge of a motor-car, at High Cross Hill, in the parish of Stanton, at 11.15 p.m. on January 26 .

Inspector Rolls asked for the case to be adjourned for a fortnight and said he thought defendant also wished for an adjournment. Defendant answered in the affirmative and the Bench adjourned the case for 14 days.

The only evidence taken was that of  P.C. Lowin  who said he was called to a collision which had occurred on High Cross Hill  and he saw defendant sitting at the steering wheel of his motor-car in a dazed condition. Defendant got out of the car and staggered about the road, and witness was of the opinion that the man was drunk. He conveyed defendant to Ware Police Station where he was seen by a doctor.

As stated, the case was adjourned for a fortnight.
